Sometimes this is a 5 star place and sometimes a 2. If you order the price fix for delivery expect a condiment cup of rice pudding for dessert and to whatever app they feel like giving you, not what you order. We keep taking the chance because when it's good it's really good.

….such a nice meal… Never being a big Indian food person, I’ve always walked by this quaint little place on Skillman Avenue, with never a thought in my head about visiting. That is until I met the owner at a local gathering, and he was just the most engaging and interesting person, so I thought I’d give it a try.... More

This was the 2nd time ordering delivery at this place. First time the food was great and even arrived earlier than expected. I was looking forward to another delicious meal of Indian foods. This time the food arrived early, but it was disappointing. The chicken biryani was not as spicy and the rice was totally mushy. Gross. Even the cat... More

My friend and I were here to use our groupon for 2 breads, 2 entrees and 2 sodas. Thanks to YELP we were aware of some of the issues we faced. When we arrived the place was nearly empty and we were nicely greeted. We received one menu when we sat down but as soon as I told them about... More

I have walked by this place numerous times, however it always looked empty. However, when i finally did visit I really enjoyed the meal. Food was very tasty and a good cost! I ate tons of Nan and the vegetarian apps were very good!

It's been a long time since there was a good Indian restaurant in Sunnyside. The place that opened in this space right before Saffron Garden was the worst of them all, and even though I've heard this has some of the same owners/chefs, it is a huge improvement. You can actually get spicy vindaloo now, even if you are American... More

We visited here for dinner (actually went to the new restraunt on the Upper East side although it doesn't yet seem to be listed). Had a delicious, tasty meal which was extremely competitively priced. The surroundings were a little basic (fake brick on the walls) but don't let that put you off. Very good food! Note - the restaurant didn't... More
